New York - Oprah Winfrey has paid a visit to two of the graduates from the celebrity's school in South Africa who are enrolled at a private college in upstate New York.
A spokeswoman for OWN, Winfrey's cable channel, said on Tuesday that the former daytime talk-show queen was at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs on Monday to meet with two graduates from Winfrey's Leadership Academy for Girls. The academy, a boarding school for underprivileged South African girls, opened in 2007.
The two young women are studying at Skidmore, a liberal arts school located 265km north of New York City.
Christel MacLean, co-owner of The Crown Grill, tells local media outlets that Winfrey and the two students had dinner at the restaurant Monday night in a private back room.
